As a favor to you, my first letter will be short. What? You don't recognize my name? Of course I am not on your list. I was never allowed to leave milk and cookies for you. Sorry, but to make it up to you, I'm writing a list now and am going to leave out cookies if I ever have kids. So, without further ado, here's what I want for Christmas...bookwise at least.
How To Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas Foster: I've read most of this book, but this is not the type of book you can read once and be done with it. Not only will this book offer me more suggestions of what to put on my TBR list, which is much longer than my wish list, but it will help me get better grades in English and wow other students with my newfound knowledge on books that they didn't bother to read. I did of course, but I can also analyze them!
The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson: This is another one I treid to read, but didn't get all the way through. there are so many poems in here that it would take longer than my limit of renewing it at the library!
Best Short Stories / Les Meilleurs Contes: A Dual-Language Book by Guy de Maupassant: I like Guy de Maupassant, but only when I can understand him. I need to work on being able to read in French...
Anything Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (other than the first movie): I'd really like a boxed set...but anything will do! I think I can put some easy reading on my shelf since I only have 5 chick-lit type books!
Revolutions by Justin Calderone: The author is a teacher at my school and a friend of my uncle's. I don't usually like poetry but this book sounds interesting.
These are the books on the top of my wishlist. There are 14 other titles that I really want, but I know you have limited time!
